Get set for a wonderful celebration of autumn with all your favourite characters at the Little Duck Pond Cafe!
An autumn fair is coming to Sunnybrook, much to the delight of the villagers. But for Madison, whose personal life seems to be spinning out of control, a roller-coaster is the last thing she needs – especially when it’s her emotions at stake.
Can she convince the delectable Jack that their relationship is worth another shot? Or has their romance ground to a permanent halt like a faulty big wheel? Will she solve the mystery of the missing name on her birth certificate? Or will her discoveries take her on a journey even bumpier than the dodgem cars? One thing’s for sure. Madison is going to need more than a fairground fortune teller to find the answers to her questions, if she’s going to ‘waltz-er’ into the happiest of sunsets…
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
Although I’ve only read a few of the books in this series, it’s like coming home, and over Christmas, I plan to catch up on those I’ve missed. This story focuses on Madison, and for those who don’t know her, there is enough backstory to let you enjoy this book.
This is a story of self-realisation for Madison as she tries to repair her relationship with Jack and find out who her father is. As she works towards these goals, she mellows and realises the importance of family, friendships and love.
The autumnal setting is lovely and atmospheric, and the relationships are believable. This a lovely balance of lighthearted romantic comedy underpinned with emotional issues that make it realistic for new and old readers of this series.
Rosie has been scribbling stories ever since she was little.
Back then, they were rip-roaring adventure tales with a young heroine in perilous danger of falling off a cliff or being tied up by ‘the baddies’.
Thankfully, Rosie has moved on somewhat, and now much prefers to write romantic comedies that melt your heart and make you smile, with really not much perilous danger involved at all – unless you count the heroine losing her heart in love.
Rosie’s Little Duck Pond Cafe series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. Each book can be read as a stand-alone story.
The latest, ‘Lucy’s Great Escape’, is out now. Watch out for further tales of the Little Duck Pond Cafe, including the delicious ‘Log Fires & Toffee Apple Cake’, which will be published in autumn 2020.
